Want something a little different? This is the species for you! Sporting stunning deep blue metallic colours and striking orange legs these ants are absolutely gorgeous! They are slightly bigger than their cousins, Rhytidoponera metallica.

They do possess a sting which can cause mild pain, so care is required when raising these ants.

They are not able to climb on plastic or glass however, so they are quite easy to contain and manage safely.
